Malcom's Story

Meet Malcom!  This spunky Terrier mix is searching for a forever home complete with endless toys, a backyard where he can chase tennis balls from sun up to sun down, and a best human friend he can cuddle with when the day is over.  Affectionate and attentive, Malcom is a smart boy who has mastered some basic commands and loves working for treats! 

Malcom doesn’t care much for other dogs and while he isn’t cut out for the dog park, he would thrive with an active adopter who can walk or run with him in a low dog-traffic area. He could stand to brush up on some basic obedience training and will need to live with someone who can manage his behavior when he sees other dogs on walks. If you’re an experienced dog owner without young children or other pets in the home and looking for an energetic canine companion, Malcom’s your guy!

  • Going for a car ride? Take me along!
  • I’m a great walking partner and can go for miles
  • I’ll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all
  • I’m a people person! 
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day


  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home
